This fellow had a planter on his head, so it might represent Pan, but I suspect more likely it is a generalized woodland spirit. He has a friendly-but-dangerous look.

A bas-relief rather than a statue, Greek, 540BCE, "Heroes and Worshipers." Early Greek statuary had very strong Egyptian influences, including showing important people large and less important people small to the point of being doll-like.I don't know the symbolism of the snake behind the Heroes' chair or throne.
